Monthly Services Inquiry


Bullet Point About Monthly Services Inquiry:

This is a monthly inquiry to small, medium and large firms in the services sector. The results from this survey will provide a key measure of economic activity in the services sector and improve the coverage and quality of services statistics, to better inform public policy in the services economy. The survey results will also contribute to meeting our EU legal obligations on short term statistics.

We have designed the questionnaire to be as short as possible, in order to minimise the effort required in responding. The survey just requires you to provide an estimate of your turnover each month. In the case of larger firms, in the last month of each quarter we will also request an estimate of investment in capital assets and if appropriate, levels of stocks held.

This survey is being conducted under the provisions of the Statistics (Monthly Services Inquiry) Order 2016 (S.I. No. 37 of 2016). The information you provide will be treated as strictly confidential in compliance with EU and national law. It will be used only for statistical purposes and will not be divulged to any other Government Department or body.
